Forum: GratefulDead Subject: First Dark Star

According to sources, 40 years ago today, the first
Dark Star was performed at the Shrine Exhibition Hall,
L.A. Cali.

Can anyone steer me to a version of this debut?
I haven't gone as far to Google it. I figure maybe one of
you kynd peeps can help.

Wouldn't you want to hear it?
I would even settle for maybe a story from one of you
elder-heads who might have been there. Come out of
lurking just for one story>

anyway, Happy 40th B-Day live Dark Star!!!!!!!

I never got a chance to see the Dead do Dark Star. My favorite of all time is on an old cassette, that tape when played on number 2 volume just takes my house down, such a fine copy of this concert and this so awesome Dark Star. This one is my favorite of all times the date of this fine show is 2-13-70

if it exists, it doesn't circulate; and anyway, this is the era of hot Viola's, why bother with what was probably a 4 minute DS

Couldn't have said it better myself...this one DID take time to mature...even an early era maniac like me has to admit it was better post 68. But, that rule does not apply to many other tunes...like the one you suggest.
